Fundamentalist Compassion

What is dogmatically
unchangingly fundamental to Christianity,
and to all win/win positive faith systems,
is certainly not capitalism’s ZeroSum economic assumptions
in which winner god takes all
from loser satan.

But, what is fundamental compassion’s truth
is profoundly sacred
globally open-systemic theology
of HolySpirit co-passion
eco-compassion could multiculturally become
integrity’s great transitioning potential
healthiest wisdom wealth.

What is ecstatically changing
deep and wide
to learn positive win/win bicameral neuropsychology
is another ecologically co-passionate
systematic re-creation theology.

If you have read
Iain McGilchrist’s
“The Master and his Emissary:
The Divided Brain and the [Un]Making of the Western World”
or
Julian Jaynes’
“The Origin of Consciousness
in the Breakdown
of the Bicameral Mind”
or
Edward DeBono’s “[Bi]Lateral Thinking”
or
Robert Norton and David Benders
“Communication and Consequences:
[Natural/Spiritual] Laws of Interaction”
or
Rob Brezny’s
“Pronoia is the Antidote to Paranoia”
preferably more simultaneously
than sequentially,

Does your experience while reading feel anything like?…

If so,
did you happen to notice
whether or not, or something in-between,
this integral/holonic perceptual frame
was more cognitive/affective confluent with THC?

If so,
did your mindbody seem to be producing/consuming

If so,
have your friends/family become more opently curious
about your newish win/win integrity
as contrasted with your earlier unreformed
fundamentally competitive win/lose evolutionary theories
rooted in lose/lose ultimate ego-centric mortal fears
and angers
and devilish mortal self-hatred?

As expressed in cognitive/affective chronically stressed voices

and emotionally disassociated messages
about left-brain courage
and right-brain curiosity,

And then push through to win/win ecofeminist matriarchal joy

The Public Health-Wealth Dissertation

What lies closest to godliness for you?

Cleanliness/purity,

Integrity,

Compassion,

Resilient health,

Wise Win/Win wealth

Other

 

Why?

Does your answer change if the question turns to:

What lies closest to Gaian EarthGoddess for you?

If so, why?

If not, why not?

 

These questions came up as I was looking for a dissertation topic for Euclid University’s PhD in Inter-Religious Dialogue and International Diplomacy.

On Euclid’s website we read something about what this is all about:

“Interfaith diplomacy is an important and new emerging field of research, notably in view of ongoing inter-religious [Win/Lose] conflict, mass migrations [not unrelated to climate change, and trending in that further unfortunate pathological Lose/Lose direction], and grave issues related to radicalization [and concomitant economic and political concerns of growing belief and behavior and investment in apartheid, monoculturing silos, self-ghettoization, and viral tendencies toward Lose/Lose rabid climates of disintegrating terrorism, dualistic nature v spirit theologies, degeneratively entropic absence of robust cooperativity—lack of Win/Win systems thinking, integral multicultural dialogue and design—fading polycultures of democratically liberal love and economic/ecological health development through Win/Win creolization rather than more Business As Usual Western commodification of sacred, integral, holonic, nonsectarian, interdependent Earth].”

Then we can read something about why:

“Euclid’s specialized PhD degree focuses on interfaith practice and the actual application of interfaith skills in the [healthy] community [of non-sectarian, non-violent, non-partisan, non-nationalistic, non-sadistic, non-masochistic cooperative democratic discernment of Win/Win integral responses to outstanding issues seeking effluent equity and affluent interdependent systems, ecosystems, egosystems, governing systems, co-governing systems, eco-governing green systems,…], rather than the advancement of [merely] academic [left-brain dominant, commodified, Win/Lose default Either/Or competitive contradicting and dividing what God may have originally kept Both/And bilaterally bicamerally and binomially cause/effect, Alpha/Omega, Left/Right, Yang/Yin, patriarchal Either/Or and matriarchal Both/And perpetual-flowing matriarchally sacred nutritional integrity kept together for further healthy-wealth Win/Win discernment, discussion, dialogue, non-sectarian diplomacy] knowledge for it’s own sake.”

“Our program places a special [Win/Win] emphasis on contemporary Islam, Muslim-Christian [Abrahamic patriarchal cooperatively co-investing in fertile multicultural and ecologically healthy wealthy self/other-optimizing integrity, authority, responsibility, resilient Win/Win stewardship of power, light, life, economic Zero-interest smart green co-investment,…] dialogue, modern [liberally cooperative green-conservation of left/right, north/south, west/east co-dominant experiential] secularism, as well as de-radicalization [non-violent communication through compassionately resilient cooperative health-supporting words and trusted Golden Rule Win/Win deeds] and [ecologically ecclesiological knowledgeable and wise mutual-polyculturing] mediation.”

 

So, when I was invited to present a dissertation topic, I suggested:

The technology and philosophy of dialogue, diplomacy, conflict resolution, restorative justice, peace-making, non-violence, WinWin solutions, derive from philosophy, theology, natural and social sciences, and perhaps even abstract psychotherapeutic geometrics.  Rather than asking the more classical academic questions of how are these better and worse than each other, how do they differ, perhaps it is more fruitful to diversely and interdependently compare these health/pathology paradigms to search for their most resilient therapeutic WinWin communion and wealthy holonic promise?

Using a combination of Systems and Game Theory, I have a dissertation interest in looking more closely,

with a local interfaith community of ecological/theological dialogue, at any two or three of the following sources to see how their analogical mapping (Gregory Bateson, Ecology of Mind) might combine to inform a robust nonsectarian healing process for Earth’s wounded economic and political climates, natural and spiritual, secular and sacred, and how we might enter into a secular/sacred non-sectarian health-and-climate-care implementation cooperative mission for healing our local Earth, wounded plants, and EgoLeft/EcoRight

Robert Norton                       communications theory                   enthymematic reiteration

To my surprise, this Win/Win cooperatively facilitated research proposal was rejected as not germane to the purposes and implementation focus of the Win/Win Inter-Religious Integrity Dialogue and Public Resilient Health Diplomacy PhD program, with stipulated intent to remain responsive to a United Nations cooperative Win/Win Earth Health Service training project to derive the most resilient terms possible for global co-investment.

So, instead of facilitating a local inter-religious and international dialogue, which would be expensive, sacrifice some trees, burn some gas and oil, it occurred to me to invite you into an even larger community of dialogue about what are our highest public and private health priorities for multiculturally cooperative people who understand godliness and/or Gaian/Marian EarthGoddessness as at least sufficient power to intend enough cooperative integrity for generating light out of nondual darkness.

Which, on living Earth, has produced some astounding evolution of compassionate grace history, and some other, darker herstoric repressions.  Even so, we each seek to facilitate and mentor polycultural resilience, polyphonic resonance, polynomial Win/Win communication, polypathic ways, and ego/eco-centering means toward divinely-humane healthy truth of wealth-abundant beauty. Or so it seems to me, which is why my answer is:

To co-facilitate good faith integrity of Earth’s vast health/wealth potential.

Engaging the Family Laundry

Perhaps infertile
incomplete
unwashed memories
of elder v younger,
Goliath v David,
crusades v communion
critical, yet part of chronic, events
speak extended family disengagement truth
to powerful dirty laundry engagement failures.

That disclaimer said,
I have two incomplete conversations
in mind and heart
and what I hope I will eventually learn
from mistakes in anemic compassion
too thin for nobler listening opportunities.

When I was sixteen,
I courageously confronted my dad
about his white supremacist beliefs,
which would not endorse slavery
but were oppressively too comfortable
with White nationalism
and patriarchal white-washed privileged capitalism
Win/Lose meritocracy theology,
teleology,
evolutionary ethology,

God’s chosen evidence of Black and Brown unfortunate
lack of pure enough LeftBrain intelligence
to successfully care for their own intellectual
and physical
property/properties God given
but in a more niggardly way.

After all, if they were as full of divine grace as we are
then they never would have become forced migrant fieldhands
and robotic domestic servants
before we had robotic domestic servants,
properly satisfied with a basic shack,
self-grown food,
cotton-picking and sugar-caning uniforms,

Rented and unrented servants capable of learning
yet not relentlessly driven by passion
for deeper democratic health interdependent webs of life
empowered each day by dense political understanding,
robust economic awareness of who has power to sell
and who has insufficient power to redeem
what could never be naturally-spiritually commodified
without severely wounded ego-disintegrity,
social madness,
political fury.

When I asked my dad,
Why are you so sure people of color,
especially women,
are so intellectually and emotionally and and mentally inferior to you,
the WhiteMan
living in an all white rural community
and all white nationalist church
fully invested in a white
plutocratic
military-industriously colonizing
authoritarian mess?
And an all white school system
and all white county government
all your life?

He could not point to any experience
of his own white superiority
But he could pull out a Reader’s Digest article
regarding research on standardized LeftBrain tests
with unstated lexicon
and linguistic norms
of dialectally empowered WhiteEnglish DominantSpeak.

My WiseElder dad told me to read it
and get back to his more seniority self
if I had any further naive questions.

That was the end of that conversation.
Question asked
and self-declared orthodox textual reference answered.

A year ago
I asked my White nationalist evangelical older brother
if he would vote for D Trumpian again,
and, if so, why?
Given his Christian God of love
and his GoodNews evangelistic vocation
to bring universal peace
and uniting divine justice to all people
everywhere,
now and in rapturous kingdom at near ill-defined hand
of future Heaven
for all eternity,
red and yellow,
black and white,
they are precious
in His sight.

My brother responded,
While troubled by Trumpian narcissism,
and maybe over-wrought cynicism,
Trump’s anti-immigrant
anti-Islam sectarianism
are a good faith fit
for God scripturally written to be pissed off
about pagan idolatrous hedonists
and uppity women
and lying stealing greedy children
and people too stupid to get it
that God has been strategically designed
in a RightWing dominant WhiteMan’s ancient
fascist
apartheid image
of spiritualized
denatured seclusion.

Well, OK,
he explicitly said just the first part,
about keeping out the threatening anti-Christian,
pro-liberal ecofeminist choice,
anti-family values foreigners,
All for building an impermeable moat
around a White privileged patriarchal “Christian” nation
on an awesome well-lit hill,
originally intended to be democratically enfranchised
only for White male property-owners,
possibly including Black and Native American slave property,

But only White property-owners have historically correct autonomous rights
to carry automatic military rifles
and drive gas and oil-hog Hummers to an all-White church
in substantially Black and Brown Flint, Michigan.

When I asked him why keeping Muslims,
and perhaps other Black
and suspiciously Spanish-speaking Brown people out,
was more important to his Christian beliefs
than keeping democratic family health care in
and USA climate therapeutic care
at the top of our global investment budget,
even higher than our ballistic automated threat budget
designed to blow up people
and plants
and planet,
He said he had no interest in that conversation.

The only important conversation for us,
from his fundamental dogma-centered power position,
was how much of the King James Holy Bible
I have properly memorized and adopted,
not adapted,
and invited into my personal everyday relationship with Jesus.

The political Jesus,
unmarried Messiah
and Teacher of following GoodNews Truth
into universal interdependent compassion,
most accessible to a child, wounded and poor in spirit,
when Win/Win Truth invites GoldenRule conflict
between elders and siblings
about signs of extended family integrity
and wonders of divinely humane non-walled communion,
non-apartheid community,
non-violent communication…

Again, I digress
from explicit historical conversations
about experiential evidence for White nationalist privilege
on into internal implications for WinWin empowering communion
where I can sometimes Left with Right childlike balance,
still finding and grasping onto
universally inviting unitarian
co-operative laundry cleaning compassion.

Great HealthCare Expectations

A pandemic Christian evangelical error
disparagingly contrasts gospel privileged scripture,
root of all-powerful faith,
with inferior and erroneous Eastern religious traditions,

Like Buddhism
and Taoist
sanctuaries of well-governed love,
and Hinduism,
and mysticism
and humanism.

Such prejudice assumes each of these spiritual/natural nondual traditions
intends to also be compassionately rooted
in creedal truths,
rather than covenanted sanctuary co-relational experience
advocating polytheistic worship,
dogmatic Word voices,
linguistic historical language choices divinely, not humanely, created,
worshipful sacred nature-creeds
for spiritually healing history.

These are not at all primal Eastern existential philosophical intent,
which is more basically,
fundamentally, if you prefer,
to capture non-sectarian natural
spiritual
dynamic health-wealth principles
rooted in nutritional-nurturing compassion
(divine sanctuary RightBrain experience)
and flowing left as good nutritional
life-fulfilling Golden Covenant,
deduced as ecologically proper theological humane behaviors.

So, spiritual development emerges
analogous with natural lifeline health-optimizing incarnations
of bilateral
secular-sacred
a-theistic-theistic EarthSanctuary governance.

Eastern traditions may be LeftBrain either/or deduced
from multiple sacred polytheistic,
yet uniting,
co-operating integrity Voices;

Powers of divine deities,
nutritional interests,
nurturing Sources
with iconic traits of interdependent species and/or genders
but only if also RightBrain holistic web intuited
as universally a-theistic,
formed by deductive either/or
cause/effect appositional reasoning

Traveling back toward mysterious and curious original integrity Source,
comprehension is Left/Right co-relational,
non-personified Yang/Yin sanctuary space
positively enlightening,
compassionately self/other
ego/eco-covenanting

A-theistic principles of reason
are Eastern WholeSystem conservative logic principles
of non-sectarian ZeroZone integrity,
holistically and holy co-passion,
unitarian liberal and democratically shared sanctuary Light

Not requiring reason to blindly bow
outside our creative diversity of faith
experienced with
or without belief in a universally uniform monotheistic creed
demanding covenants of wealth-bearing fidelity
expressed through unquestioning worship
remotely not communicating with WholeSystem philosophy,
ecological green sanctuary theology of Earth
as prime principle of Light’s creative integrity.

John,
the Disciple closest to the red-blooded heart of the Word
incarnating compassionate breathing in and out Light,
also experienced Jesus of Nazareth
as his Great Sanctuary Mentor
singing in harmonious liberty
of two-way cooperative covenants
lifting every sanctuary Worded voice,
black and brown and white
and green and blue and red rhapsodies
in multiculturing rainbows
of active hope-filling
well-being
Light.

WholeSystem existential natural/spiritual Light
is included in the living water gospels of co-redemption,
for those with covenanting eyes
to sanctuary see
who I integrally AM
is who WE healthy BECOME.

To paraphrase the Dalai Lama,
Compassionate Philosophy lies beyond sectarian Religion:
Health Sanctuary for a WholeSystemic World.

Silent NewBorn Revolution

“Evolution
takes its sweet time
in its work
on our collective consciousness;
the lasting leap from fear to love
in the human mind
will be its masterpiece.”
Walking to Listen, p. 139
Andrew Forsthoefel

Evolution, like redemption,
takes its sweet Christmas is coming time
in its therapeutic work
on our collective climate consciousness;
The lasting leap from competing noisy fear
to more cooperatively-owned and -managed quiet love
and health
in the human mind
and wealthy heart
and dancing feet
and swelling song
will be its master/mistress-piece.

Evolution’s cooperative Silence is huge
and timeless,
the freedom of just-right complexity, not anarchy,
replacing chaotic personal and political identity.

And yet
the opposite is also true,
when silence is not shared
but an isolating prison
of discontenting consent
to mutually hide.

Here, dead time stands hopelessly still,
stale,
stagnant,
lethal,
terrifying,
claustrophobic.

Freedom of silent eternity,
shared internally,
turned revolutionarily outward to embrace all,
is also absence of liberty
to silently, collusionally,
conspiringly build Ego’s swelling codependent prison
of deep learned despair.

ZenBuddhist teachers
invite ZeroZone silence,
as do PolyCultural Designers, for that nutritional matter,
not to avoid positive robust attachments
but to grow ever deeper and wider healthy roots
absorbing compost of nurturing interdependent passion.

Silent soul co-passion,
positive-positive flowing nutritional ego-eco relationship,
WinWin co-operative
potential for furthering communion’s silent depth,
natural environmental resonance,
EarthTribe timeless resilience,
Golden ComPassion Rules
for exceeding anemic and passive-aggressive non-violent diplomacy
by I win so You must lose threat,
power-overing repression,
attachment to LeftBrain Yang-elite dominance.

Silent compassion
fuels bicameral branching external climate vocations.

On the Left/Yang convex side,
building of resilient global communion,
multicultural,
explores organic meanings for Ego’s optimal vocation
toward personal nutritional wealth.

On Right/YinFlow concave side,
watering resonant climates of internal health,
wealthy sensory and cognitive enchantments,
positive energy attachments
to EgoLeft/EcoRight
GoldenRule DNA climate therapy,
now waves of oscillating Yang
overpowering too thin Yin
underflowing bipolar pre-millennial dissonance.

Left and Right dipolar co-arising together
reweave Yang’s external silent evolution,
ZeroZone center
of oscillating ecstatic Yin compassion waves,
20-20 silent revolutionary cooperative
becoming silent second sight
within/out integral compassionate EarthTribe,

Universal Yang branched Communion
of unitarian YinFlow branching out healthy cooperative Purposes.

If others choose to see this tree structure
Yang exterior communion
as God the Father’s EarthCreation,

And YinFlow loving interior redemptive healing agenda
as His messianic-bodhisattva-missionary EarthPassioned Son,

And silent resilient ecstasy
of EgoSoul as Holy EcoSpirit within

Bicameral hearts and minds
co-arising external healthy enchantments
of God’s EarthCreative
wealthy robust climate,
sacred Home,
EcoHabitat,

I would not be at all opposed,
loudly
or even ZeroZone silently.

Multicultural evolution’s cooperatively-owned silence
is reiteratively,
echoingly huge
and timeless empowering waves

For freedom of complex communal economies,
inside and outside organic climates,
replacing chaotic political identity,
absence of synergetic
silent shared integrity.

Silent Night through DayTime Prayers

Before presidents and attorneys got hold of it,
and back before theologians were even a glint in the Golden GodHead’s eye,

Prayer, silent or verbose,
was filled with reminders and gratitude to ourselves
and for and from others,
with pleas for urgent help
from all souls past
and still longed for,
especially those personally remembered
by having shared this home on Earth
in more balanced golden era times
of enchanting imaginations,

And petitions
to future generations
to finish what we,
and all who have passed through before us,
have healthy started,

And to forgive us for what we have neglected to rightly left unfinish,
failed to deeply hear and see resonance,
heart and mind resilience,
feel and think restoratively
this difference between healthy resilient prayerful life
and pathological resistance
to sacred multiculturing educational re-membering
theo/ecological resources of silent EarthTribe souls.

For experiential ecologists,
and for communion theologists,
those who see cooperative nature’s climate outside
reflecting organic spirit’s health v. mortal pathology inside,
Prayer often leads from suffering impatient words and warnings
toward restoring just non-violent silence.

Life as prayer provokes a transubstantiating bridge
between past and future regenerators
for growing compassionately interdependent Left/Right Brain Egos

To travel back through origins of healthy DNA time
and forward toward omega tipping points to co-arise branching wealth
securing resilient global resonance
restoring justice
regathering Earth’s ecstatic silent communion
within AllSouls before,

Breaking through theological silence, glass ceilings,
boundaries for and against solidarity of ecstatic futures,
polycultural wealth of health outcomes,
resiliently sustainable.

Such prayer changes interdependent things, systems
transubstantiate yin-cooperative and yang-competitive relationships.

Living prayer stretches ZeroSouls
experiencing ZenZone co-empathy–
easier in communal ego/eco-dynamic
empowering ecstatic silence
of a FullMoon winter solstice night.

Christmas Political Correctness

It’s almost Christmas
when the news caster abouter announces
a precipitous new trend in the U.S.

Now, more tired and climate stressed citizens
are against non-violent Political Correctness
than for political and economic government business
as contentiously nationalistic
and ineffectively partisan usual.

I wonder what the first Christmas would have looked like
if God the Loving Father
had been more Politically Correct
and sent His only beloved ChristChild
into the palace of Caesar Augustus

Who might have celebrated with a proclamation:
“All residents must register,
whether natural born citizens or not,
back in your original place of birth
so you can pay more taxes
to support more soldiers
to make more empire-building weapons
to protect my royal monocultural Reign,
soon to be overpoweringly extended
by God’s great patriarchal meritocracy reward,
Jesus Caesar, free of cooperative Politically Correct weaknesses,
Prince of RomanWar.”

Instead,
birthing Jesus in a shepherd’s barn
to parents temporarily homeless and displaced
by greedy war-mongering machinations
of Caesar Augustus…
Was that effective Politically Correct choice
or not?

Are you an evangelistic Christian
for growing rebirth into non-violent peace communication,
healthy relationships with all God’s EarthTribes,
advocating cooperatively owned and managed wealth and happiness
and resiliently nutritional and nurturing prosperity?

Internally effective prosperity,
mutual friendships
reflecting external natural and spiritual climate health care.

Or,
did God your Loving PolyCultural Father
intervene in history with Political Incorrectness
from your more humble Christmas manger view?

Among homeless immigrants,
animals,
straw,
stars,
angels,
nationalistic violent intent
to unbirth a suffering servant of non-violent Peace,
teaching theological and political points
of healthy effective internal
with environmental co-governance,
natural/spiritual Correctness.

Peaceful Christmas to Healthy All
multinational residents,
whether Politically Correct citizens of Rome
or Washington
or Mecca
or Bethlehem
reborn through this our non-violent co-passionate messiah vocation

To follow Christ born in a temporary shelter
and in ambiguous paternity circumstances,
surrounded by stars and angels
and by threat of Politically Violent Incorrectness.

May we all become reborn in climates of non-violent health,
reborn in multiculturing friendship,
reborn in compassionate Politically Correct peaceful wealth,
and sufficient clean water
and air
and soil prosperity
for God the Father’s Kingdom
at healthyLeft with wealthyRight hand,
Yang with Yin,
Nature with Spirit effective sojourner feet and minds
and Peace-commissioned bodies,

Reborn PC non-violent self-with-other
co-governing strong intent and flow-practicing
historic scripture-rooted, seeded
Multiculturing healthy Life,
Compassioning Truth,
Loving integral WuWei.
